This sweater was designed for the following yarn.
Euroflax Sport, 100% Linen
This sport weight linen yarn is wet spun from flax-fiber. Exceptional softness is achieved by fine splitting the long fibers and double-boiling the yarn. Machine wash on gentle cycle using a non-bleach, mild soap. Dry in your dryer on a medium setting for 15 minutes, then lay flat to finish. For an even softer result, dry completely in the dryer. To enhance the sheen of the yarn, steam with a steam iron.
The on-screen color representations for yarn may not be precise representations of actual colors due to variance in monitor calibrations.
